Edward Gaming rolled over Vici Gaming during Day 2 of the Chinese League of Legends Pro League Spring Split even without team captain and starting jungler Ming "Clearlove" Kai, who did not start after recently returning from a break.

Edward Gaming blitzed out to an early lead thanks to an impressive amount of map pressure, using the extra advantage to claim the game's first Baron during the mid game. The ensuing teamfight, wherein the kill count went in favor of Edward Gaming, 4-0, only put Vici Gaming further in the hole, as EDG's Lee "Scout" Ye-chan's Ryze and Hae "Zet" Seong-Min's Caitlyn picked up double kills.

Edward Gaming won the final teamfight with a 5-1 kill count, with Tian "Meiko" Ye's Zyra and Zet picking up double kills to end the game. EDG's Chen "Mouse" Yu-Hao earned the game's MVP award with a 1/2/9 KDA (kills/deaths/assists) on Maokai.

In Game 2, Edward Gaming used an early Ryze roam from Scout to pick up two kills in the bottom lane and followed it up with a four-man dive moments later, leading to two kills, first turret blood and a mountain dragon. The game quickly snowballed from there as Vici Gaming was never able to gain control.

Edward Gaming took charge in the second-to-last teamfight, securing Baron and 2-0 kill advantage, giving them a commanding 11,000 gold lead by the time the buff wore off. With a clean ace in the final teamfight, Edward Gaming closed out their sweep over Vici Gaming, as Zet finished with an impressive 5/0/10 KDA on Jhin.
